I was about to open a "Please check in" thread; glad you beat me to it.
Please feel free to use this board to communicate. I would ask that we call a moratorium to any Silly Season topics today as a sign of respect to all of the people who have died.

I can tell. Our rehearsals are very close to the WTC, we are trying to find out how things are there - they should be very sooty, but intact.
I haven't gone out yet. It's oddly sunny and lovely out my window. I heard the roar of jets about 10 am. So I thought. I've now believe it was the sound of the second tower collapsing.
Lower Manhattan is evacuated. For those of you who are local or otherwise affected, I am thinking of you.

Dale, thanks for your eyewitness report. Others who have been involved, or were near to what happened and saw it, please feel free to share experiences.
There have been suggestions on TV news to try to stay off phones -- especially cell phones -- to leave them clear for people who need them.

I know I am speaking for all of us on Ballet Co when I say how deeply shocked and grieved we all are here on this board and indeed in the UK at today's terrible events in New York and Washington.
There are no adequate words at times like this, but at least we are thinking of you.

I waited in line for an hour or so to give blood at St. Vincent's in the Village before being told to go elsewhere. I walked to my local hospital, but they're not taking blood. I've heard there's a place at 66th and Amsterdam, and I'll be off for there, soon.
There is a constant cacaphony of sirens, and occasional roars of airplanes even in midtown. I hear any sort of loud noise and wonder if it's a bomb. After I give blood I will surely need a drink.

I am so stunned...still can't believe it...shocked...!
PNB closed for the day for security reason (Seattle Center grounds with Space Needle)...
Glad to hear that most of you are fine...
How can something like this happen ?
